    Selection 1         The queen bee is the most important bee in the hive. She is usually the mother of all the bees in the hive, and rules over all the other bees. Special worker bees look after her by brushing and combing her body and making sure that she is fed on royal jelly. The queen must be strong and healthy to lay eggs. It has been estimated that she may lay two thousand eggs a day and up to a million in her lifetime.         A queen bee lives in the middle of the hive where it is warm. She goes from cell to cell poling in her long slender body to lay eggs. She lays eggs in a few special cells that are reserved for the new queens. The ordinary eggs hatch out into larvae and are fed on bee bread. The new queens are fed royal jelly, a secretion from glands on the heads of young workers, to make the queens grow faster and have a different appearance from the worker bees.         When a colony of bees becomes overcrowded, the old queen moves off. She takes many of the worker bees with her and leaves in a swarm. Some workers stay behind to care for the larvae that have been left behind. After the pupa stage, the young bees emerge. Among the young bees are the few young queens, who have been in their special cells that look like half peanut shells. The queens fight and sting each other until only one remains as the new ruler of the hive. She then flies from the hive to mate with one or more drones. The young queen returns to the hive and begins to lay eggs two days later. The new queen never needs to mate again and may live for as long as another five years. Question: Around how many eggs could a queen bee lay in a day?
